Rangers president Nolan Ryan has heard talk about realignment and would be in favor of the club being in the same division as the Houston Astros.
"It would be good if we had somebody else in our division in the same timezone and I think that's important," Ryan said. "We're at a disadvantage from a TV audience and our travel. I would be in favor of adding somebody. I think it would be good if you had the Astros and the Rangers in a pennant race. It would stimulate a lot of interest in the state. That would be good."
